pizza casserole

servings: 7
preheat: 350
ready in: 1 hour
ps this is not my tablecloth


  • 2 cups uncooked egg noodles (can substitute other pastas)
  • 1/2 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 bell pepper, chopped (doesn't matter what color)
  • 1 cup sliced pepperoni sausage
  • 16 ounces pizza sauce
  • 4 tablespoons milk
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese
  • some green onions, chopped 
  • olives
Cook noodles in salted boiling water.  Add a little olive oil if they are especially old and dry (like mine are haha)
In a large frying pan, cook beef, onion, garlic, green onion, and pepper until meat is browned and onions are cooked.  I added meat tenderizer and mcormick hamburger seasoning to the hamburger, which had been frozen, and it helped a lot.
Stir in noodles, pepperoni, pizza sauce, olives, and milk--mix well. Pour into glass baking dish.

Pizza Sauce (I didn't have any so i made some).  Mix together until smooth:
  • 1 can tomato sauce
  • 1 can tomato paste
  • 2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 tablespoon basil
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon spicy crushed pepper
  • creole seasoning (a nice spicy/salty seasoning)

Bake for 15 minutes, then top casserole with mozzarella and cheddar cheese. Bake until cheese melts.
This is really pretty tasty.


  1. How are you pumping out all these tasty things?! My favorite part is that you had to specify it wasn't your tablecloth! HA!!!!!!!

  2. Mmm! This sounds like my kind of casserole! I seriously think I will try it out this week (only I might cut down on the garlic!)

  3. Yeah, I love the tablecloth comment. Come on, we know it's yours. Yeah, you little chefboy, nice cookin!

  4. Corey and Suzy will love the creole addition!
    And spices with measurements included!? Wow!
    P.S. Grandmother's been wondering what happened to her tablecloth.... : )

  5. I have a challenge for you, Rich. At your convenience, please prepare one of my favorite dishes (Chicken Spaghetti), and list what you did to make a more flavorful sauce. Thanks!
